Retro-Fresh Wednesday - Tag Your It...

Good morning all.
     Well it is finally Wednesday and not only does that mean that we are halfway through this week it also means that it is time for this month's Retro-Fresh Wednesday!  Jess has given us the challenge of pulling out those most cherished but somewhat neglected (6 months or older) stamps and make anything that has a tag on it, in it or is a tag.  lol.... Just have fun with this one.  The very first thing that came to my mind was that I love, love my 'Merry Tags' that I had purchased last year, and had yet to put to good use.  I also thought that as I will need to put some tags on all the Christmas gifts that I still have to wrap I might as well put this challenge to good use.  lol...  Yes, I went there.  I stamped out several copies of this set and went to coloring them up with my Copics.   I then grabbed  some smooch and glossy accents along with some stickles to make them look like Christmas cookies. 
     While I was busy coloring and just really having a great time making my homemade gift tags,(thank you Greeting Farm Stamps!) I started to remember that my Aunt would have all three of us kids come over to her house for a whole day to make frosted sugar cookies with her.  Now you have to know that my Brother is 7 & 1/2 years younger than me, and 10 years young than my Sister.  Needless to say some of our cookies were not exactly pieces of art.  lol... I can even remember a couple of those delicious cookies having the ugliest purple frosting.  I can assure you however that those cookies never went to waste.  God bless my Dad, Mom and Grandma  for not being too picky about how their Christmas cookies looked. lol...
     I did drift off topic, but it is Christmas and I tend to really love thinking about all my family.  My Aunt and Grandma are no longer with us, but I love remembering all the things they did with us kids.  So give your family a hug today and have fun with our Challenge.  As always, so can get all the details and see the wonderful creations that the rest of the DT has come up with right here.  Well, what are you waiting for?  I know your busy, but grab one of those stamps that you know you love soooo much and make a tag with us.
      So, before I let you go have some fun with those stamps... If you are a Gleek, did you watch the Christmas show last night?  OMWORD!!!!  Sorry I just could not say a little something.  It was very good and that is all I have to say about that.  lol..... Have a great day. I will talk at you tomorrow. 
Hugs, Lisa G

Lovely tags, Lisa! I don't have that set...I try to pick sets with the most versatility, but you are working hard to make me reconsider that! LOL
I have Glee on the DVR so I can watch when the kids leave for school! Now I am curious!

The gift tags are just the sweetest Lisa (pun intended). ;)
They are going to look so great on the gifts beneath your tree this year!
And I also want to thank you for reminding me about this set... I've been stuck on a card and now I'm thinking these would be the perfect addition. You're a life saver! :)

Oh and I loved, loved, loved the Glee Christmas special last night. I could have watched and listened to them all for two whole hours, LOL!
